Steve Miller Took the Puck (New Pic)

While it was fairly obvious that Steve Miller took the puck, the Tribune released a new photo that clearly shows him with the puck. He has some explaining to do.

But seriously, yeah... he has some explaining to do. If he was smart, he would've just said from the very beginning that he picked it up, but didn't remember who he handed it to. Not exactly that far-fetched of a thing to believe. As it is now though, the fact that he's denied it up to this point just makes it look like he's been hiding something now that there's definitive photo evidence.

If he has the puck, they should try and get it back. I'm sure the HHOF, Patrick Kane, or the Chicago Blackhawks organization would appreciate having that puck a lot more than Steve Miller.

He's probably already sold it or given it away by now. All he has to do is deny it... I mean really, what can the HHOF do about it?

Yes, but what a *******. Technically, it's a game-used puck, so it belongs to no one in general, but it was pretty selfish of him to take the puck. At least give it to the HHOF, Kane, or the Blackhawks organization. I believe he still has a job. Maybe the NHL could question him. I have no clue.

Saw this story last weekend. His tune changed from denial to saying he doesn't remember what he does with every puck. I think he's working game 7 tommorrow, so the NHL apparently doesn't care.

I feel like the Hawks/NHL can press legal charges of some sort? Maybe a lawsuit or something? A puck is considered a work instrument and belongs to the NHL. If the NHL has it on good notice that Miller has the puck, I'm sure they could do something about it.

That being said, I'm not sure the NHL really cares enough to expose one of their employees as a thief. And like I said, I'd imagine that at this point Miller has sold the puck, hidden it, or given it away and even if the NHL were to force some legal action... he would just deny, deny, deny and there would be no proof of anything.

That puck is long-gone for the foreseeable future... maybe it surfaces again in some years when the roots can't be retraced or something? Or when people don't care enough to question where it came from?

For what it's worth, the HHOF asked for that puck the second it went in.

Good point. Not as funny as 'take the money and run' but good point.

Not like it was some meaningless practice puck he found by the boards, not like it was a puck the HHOF wants - oh wait, it is a puck the HHOF wants.

Imagine a guy saying "Geez, so I traded it for a bag of Doritos, a 40 of Olde English Malt Liquor and a carton of Niagara Cigarettes... can't hardly admit that now can I? So I don't remember, I don't recall, I have no memory of anything at all..."

Why does anyone care? If I was Kane, I would have already given it away by now but then again I would have never cared enough about it to have it in the first place. Let Steve Miller have it. I'd hate to hear he sold it, but what are you gonna do? He wouldn't have taken it and sold it if he knew the NHL really cared.

I find it hard to believe he doesn't remember picking up the Stanley Cup winning puck. I smell B.S. Unfortunately I don't think anyone will be able to prove anything.

that's because its not actually steve miller. Pronger had a ref uniform on under his gear and changed into it real quick then snatched the puck up so nobody would know it was him.

His explanation is that he doesnt remember picking it up and doesnt know what he would have done with it.
Considering that he at first denied picking it up and now claims that he doesnt remember picking it up and what he did with it makes the whole thing seem fishy to me.

Really? You honestly dont think that Miller realized that the puck was a piece of history and that he could sell it for a lot of money.

guranteed he will still deny he has the puck, or he'll say he doesnt remember what he did with it.

Exactly and thats why the puck will likely never be found unless the league does much more to pressure him about it.
Whats really said about this is that Miller is reffing game 7 this year and I wouldnt be the least bit surprised if the game is close and is decided by a late-game goal that the puck from that goal, "disappears" as well.
Granted, its just a hockey puck but for the winning team its a piece of history and a decent person would make sure the team or the player who scores that goal gets the puck.

NHL just needs to bury a GPS device inside these SCF pucks and if someone walks off with one just nab 'em outside the arena.

"Empty yer pockets, Steve!"

"Awww how'd than get there?"

Wonder if any other things go missing when he's around?

"You leave it laying around I mught just pick it up and put it in my pocket."

LOL...Id be happy with the league suspending Miller until he cracks and admits what he did with the puck.
"I dont remember" isnt an excuse that works for me.

This whole things reminds me of that childhood sing-song:

"Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar?"
"Who me? Couldn't be"
"Then who?"
